Fun – Fitness – Friends

No Kroc Practice from August 16-23 

No practice Monday, August 16 through Saturday, August 21. The pool is being drained to have some annual maintenance done. Sometimes maintenance plans don’t always go as planned, so check out our Facebook page for confirmation on starting back on Monday, August 23.

Four

On Saturday, September 25 (this does not conflict with a home Husker Football game) UNO Swimming & Diving team will be having its annual golf outing. This event was a lot of fun in the past years, and I usually don’t like to golf but I do like this event. It is not a fundraiser it is more of a friendraiser – getting supporters of the swimming community together. This year we have a change of venue! Many golf courses would not book our friendraiser but I am happy to announce we will be at Milt’s this year. This course brings back great memories, it made golf fun for me! All are welcome to join in the fun: Masters, boosters, alumni, and friends. A flyer will be coming out within the next two weeks - check out our Facebook page. It would be awesome if we could get at least 3 foursomes from our group!  Because space is limited, please let me know asap if you are interested, even if it is tentative.

Brain Power

One of our swimmers, Peter Wolcott, ran across this article on the brain benefits of swimming.  I knew swimming was great for the body but now we know it increases brain power. Peter notes, the article doesn't address the question of the additional benefits of cognitively challenging workouts :)
